[ Acne Studios 'Azade' blouse, Topshop bandana shorts, Nike Free Run sneakers, Fendi tote ]

Photos by Steve Pyne

On a particularly dusty pink sunset day in Santa Monica after playing tour guide to some good friends from Vancouver. A twisted take on the normal sneakers, shorts, and t-shirt formula by adding this Acne Studios sheer back and knotted silk t-shirt. It's always an instant boost of a staple when your t-shirt is made of silk. Knowing I'd be walking a lot, I was psyched to wear my new customized sneakers from Nike for a good dose of realistic practicality. (Close ups of these comfortable babies soon.) Shorts are quickly amassing in my wardrobe due to LA being such a bare-legged friendly place. These bandana print ones from Topshop are a great addition, plus they add a splash of colour to an otherwise bland & boring black palette. Although I say... bland is the new black.
